New semiconductor technologies are driving higher efficiency in power conversion
White Paper Overview
Power conversion is a common element in almost every electronic device, implemented in a variety of topologies. New and emerging applications bring their own unique requirements, putting pressure on engineers to develop AC-DC and DC-DC converters that offer the optimum balance of performance and efficiency. However, this isn’t always a simple task. Choosing the right topology is only the beginning of the challenge - it is also necessary to select power components carefully and as new semiconductor technologies come to market, engineers have the opportunity to discover and evaluate new solutions to old problems.
